Vanessa Hudgens: I Made Myself Ugly for 'Gimme Shelter'!

Vanessa Hudgens: I Made Myself Ugly for 'Gimme Shelter'!

Vanessa Hudgens is camera shy while covering her face with a cell phone after a gym workout on Friday (January 17) in Culver City, Calif.

Earlier in the week, the 25-year-old actress donned a classy black dress while promoting her latest film Gimme Shelter during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

“I just kinda tried to make myself as ugly as possible, whether that was the way that I walked or my mannerisms or the tone of my voice. I wanted her to be strong and tough but broken because that’s what she is. You just see her transform into someone who actually finds love and really feels it for the first time and there’s nothing more powerful than finding love,” Vanessa recently shared to E! News about channeling her character.

FYI: Vanessa is wearing the Love, Simdog Cosmic Peace tee.

15+ pictures inside of Vanessa Hudgens stepping out after a workout at the gym…

    She never got ugly!

  • IMO

    @Eduardo: What a sweet thing to say. I must admit she did transform into someone else though. She and Rosario are almost unrecognizable.
    Amazing performances.

  • Nightwish

    Wow, her short chunky legs look exactly like they do in the bongo ad LOL

  • Haters Suck!

    Vanessa went through a remarkable transformation for this role. When I first saw it I was stunned. Now I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • love

    then that means she doesn’t tried it too hard?? YOU’RE ALREADY UGLY GIRL C’MON!!

  • bean

    Looking good ma baby.
    So does anyone here know why she was visiting a psychiatrist? I hope everything is alright with her.

  • Malu

    @love: have you ever tried to look into a mirror? Or it broke already…lol.
    You are plain jealous

  • Malu

    @love have you tried looking into a mirror or is it broken already, because it neither could stand you? Lol… You are just plain jealous…
    Plus I’m very proud because as Vanessa (and well even zac) said beauty isn’t in your looks is in the personality, and you my dear know nothing about that

  • Haters Suck!

    @bean
    She didn’t. At the moment that was a rumor that started on twitter that no one can be sure of.

  • Nightwish

    @Haters Suck!: If it is true, maybe its because her career never panned out. I can tell by her need for attention that shes gonna have problems down the road. Be practical. Gs was shot over two years ago. hudgens is no longer viable in teen or early twenties roles. Now she has to remarket herself.

  • Haters Suck!

    @nightwish
    All I have to say to you is kiss my ass. You’re nothing but a evil punk ass b!tch.

  • Nightwish

    At least she has her PR team.. hatersuck, maria, tina etc to support her no matter what but the whole thing is a losing proposition if you ask me

  • bean

    @ Haters suck she did. There were photos.

  • Haters Suck!

    @nighywish
    Evil punk ass b!tch.

  • Haters Suck!

    @bean
    Where?

  • Nightwish

    @Haters Suck!: Wow, i think she took my advice and gained four more pounds. Do you think she reads my comments dude? Am i being too mean?

  • hepburn

    Call me antiquated but this girl is so cheap looking.

  • Haters Suck!

    @nightwish
    I think you’re an evil punk ass b!tch. What part of this are you not getting. The evil? The punk ass? Or the b!tch?

  • maria

    @bean: That was not reported correctly. It was not a psychiatrist’s office. It was an acting coach’s house, from what I remember.

  • kassie

    People who think Vanessa is actually talented are delusional LOL

  • e

    What would be wrong with visiting a psychiatrist? If something is wrong then it shows a lot of maturity on Vanessa’s part to get help before it becomes a problem (we all know what can happen to people who don’t deal with their problems and just bury them inside, it’s not something that you want people to go through), but I’m not saying that something is wrong, I know that Vanessa went to see a psychiatrist after the whole photo incident a couple of years ago and maybe it felt great to talk to someone who she isn’t related to or have some other connection to that she have continued doing it, it must be great when you live with that kind of pressure to talk things through with someone every once in a while, it’s admirable and I have to say that if more people would go and talk to someone instead of bury it inside I have the feeling that there would be far less common with drugs and alcohol, especially among today’s youth (both in Hollywood and everywhere else) because it is the bad psychological health that comes from the pressure that today’s youth feels that is one of the main reason why so many kids/teens/young adults are in really dark places and if more would feel and understand the benefits of talking to someone before it goes too far I think people would just be happier, so good for Vanessa, if nothing else she shows with going there and the way that she lives her life choosing to be happy that everyone can do it and that there is help to get and that it’s ok to as for it.

  • Haters Suck!

    Nightwish stop posting under different names. I know its you cause you’re the only dumbass who puts LOL after each comment they make.

  • anney

    @bean:
    it was a friend’s house

  • anney

    @kassie:
    lmao you are using different names. how pathetic

  • luna

    does anyone know what she is working with the millennium guys?

  • belle

    she looks adorable! can’t wait to see her whole spread on Nylon Magazine!!!

  • belle

    @bean:
    isn’t she visiting a friend? at least that’s what the photo agency said.

  • soy

    @Haters Suck!: hi vanessa how are you?

  • belle

    @Nightwish:
    have you seen her video promo on ellen? do you really think she has gained weight? are you blind or you are just a jealous little girl?

  • .

    @Nightwish:
    she is a healthy person, her soul and her body are in complete harmony, that´s why, even if you hate it, she is a beautiful person, her soul shines and thats why she is loved. She doesnt need drugs, like others stars, she doesnt need a famous family or be part of hollywood nepotism to get roles. And the most important, she is actually happy and is living her dream.

  • .

    @belle:
    we are getting everything this week

  • living in a box

    hello!!!!! may i join the conversation!!! first thing first, i want to congratulate to ALL delusional baby v fans that think she have a chance getting oscar nomination. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!!! this year baby v is out of job, there is no movie coming out this year, and even her current movie no one is watching,well except all baby v delusional fans. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! before end of the year baby v probably will heading back to tv. people who said baby v done a remarkable transformation in the movie, well i guess you haven’t watch Jared Leto in Dallas Buyer Club, or Christian Bale in the machinist, Chalize Theron in monster or Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones. i having more fun watching Kpop video like Girls Generation I Got A Boy or Galaxy Supernova than watching baby v movie.

  • .

    @soy:
    hi little girl Nightwish, aren’t you tired of changing your name with the same ip address?

  • samantha

    it was really nice to find out that Dakota, AJ and Annasophia, just to name some, auditioned to be Apple, but Vanessa got the role. I really cant wait to watch the movie. Im amazed by Vanessa´s transformation.

  • Haters Suck!

    @living in a box
    Tv. You say that like its a bad thing. I certainly wouldn’t mind seeing vanessa on my tv every week.

  • samantha

    @belle:
    she is so skinny! i saw the promo video and her waist its so da mn tiny! she is like a little doll. And her legs look soooooooooooooooooo long!

  • bean

    @haters suck @ maria just google vh psychiatrist visit
    Lots of sites reported it. Lovebugs were worried naturally.

  • samantha

    @bean:
    are you talking about this set? Vanessa Hudgens goes to a friend’s house on December 27, 2013.

  • @living in a box:
    why do you hate someone like Vanessa? she is a really sweet girl, with a gorgeous soul, i hope you can meet Vanessa, her spirit its so pure, Christ has changed her into a better person – she used to have a beautiful soul, now she is just stunning- and im sure he can change you too.

  • Nightwish

    @.: You are a moron. Its impossible that im the only person who finds this chick hugely overrated and annoying to you guys, but youre all screwed up in the head. And working for hudgens.

  • Nightwish

    Filming for gimme shelter started in June 2011. Its finally being released in 2014. This film is already so friggin old! 2 1/2 years it takes them to fix all the problems, and target it for a lame jan release. Stop getting so excited about this one hudgens loosiers, lest you end up in therapy too

  • yets

    so proud of you girl.

  • kassie

    @anney: WTF are you talking about? You must be a real genius

  • bean

    @samantha yep. That’s the one. It was a psychiatrist office.

  • Haters Suck!

    @bean
    You’re free to believe what u want I suppose. But I’m gonna need more then pics of vanessa going into a random building, house, whatever to convince me.

  • italian mom

    Well. I had the privilege of meeting a bunch of eminent psychiatrists and psycologists and share free time and meals etc.. Believe me they are amazing extraordinary people full of science common sense and sensibililty and passion for human kind.
    I would ROOT for Vanessa to meet and learn as much as possible because they are able to spread so much good advice to us, common people.
    When they choose this profession their motivation very often is their own pain and love they dealt with and survived.

  • bean

    @haters suck whatever men. All the gossip sites reported it that way. Something might be behind this.

  • emma

    @Italian mom i however don’t supppse her visit to psychiatrist had anything to do with sharing knowledge with them. Lol

  • maria

    @e: @e: I totally agree. Talking to someone during a therapy session is far better than letting something take root in your life that is not healthy. But honestly, I believe that was an acting coach’s house and it was erroneous reporting. As happens often here.

  • tina

    @bean: All? Really? Don’t make it into something it’s not. Even if she did so what? You obviously want it to be a negative thing but sometimes it’s not. You need to check the meaning of the word GOSSIP. This started with X17 online you should check their track record with her. They have a pap who she never lets have a good pipicture of her. He says the rudest things to her. Bottom line believe whatever the HELL you want. A picture of her entering a gate? Get serious. She’s at a good place in her life, she’s happy and healthy
